Ken Unsworth is a senior Australian artist who draws upon an extraordinarily diverse repertoire of skills, techniques and devices. He is an enigmatic creator known for his conceptual sculptures and sculptural installations, mechanical works, land art events, and innovative performances that combine music, theatre, dance and art.
Truly, Madly surveys significant aspects of Unsworth’s career. It includes his earliest sculptures and re-commissioned kinetic works, produced during the 1980s, and installations incorporating the figure as a key component, through to recent works in which he brings together elements and concepts that have preoccupied him throughout the course of his creative life.
Truly, Madly has been developed in close association with the artist and is the first major exhibition of his sculptural practice to be held in Melbourne.
